Corazon Bautista - Synergy at TMC
Corazon Bautista is chairman and founder of Global Care, a company which hires Filipino nurses for jobs at the largest and most advanced hospitals in the United States. At the same time, she is a steadfast client of The Medical City’s (TMC) Center for Wellness and Aesthetics, and actively encourages her State-side peers to visit TMC for their health care needs. Nonetheless, she doesn’t see her advocacy of the hospital as a conflict of interest at all.
“It’s a blending—a synergy—of what’s best in both countries,” Cory says. While these nurses get to offer their unique, Pinoy brand of warmth and expertise in the US, she explains, TMC gets to offer health care in the Philippines at par with that of the best US hospitals.
Cory, who is very much into preventive medicine and following a healthy lifestyle, also appreciates the synergism within TMC itself, which she deems a big reason for her ardent visits. In what has already become her tradition three years running, she gets her preventive health checks at the Center for Wellness and Aesthetics, and makes sure to take an active role in TMC’s patient partnership drive.
“I’m a very ‘So what does that mean?’ kind of person. I always want to know what’s happening to me, and the consequences of each treatment or service,” she explains. “At TMC, there is a two-way communication between you and your doctor. I can feel what’s happening to my body, but sometimes I can’t explain my condition, so the doctors listen to me and explain it for me. And when I listen to them, I can understand more about my body.”
In fact, Cory considers TMC’s doctors and staff to be of a new and better breed—one that is not only informative and cooperative, but also puts the patient on center stage at all times.
“Abroad, I feel like the doctors are always rushing on to the next patient. At TMC, I feel that I am the most important person. There is always a personal touch to my treatment. I play a large part in determining the course my health is taking.”
As a person who champions wellness, Corazon finds TMC the perfect partner for her lifestyle, wherein she eats the right food, exercises regularly, drinks plenty of fluids, and stays spiritually centered. No doubt TMC’s excellent and customized service works splendidly with these wholesome habits.
“To me, wellness is about happiness in everything that I do in my life, big and small,” she elaborates. “It’s about being good to yourself and listening to your body.”
